How can I transfer my customers phone numbers from Quick Books to the iPhone?

I would like to create a category on my iPhone called clients. Whenever one of them calls from their saved number it would ring a different ring tone and display their name.

Does iPhone have any phone number import features?

 Does Quick Books have any client list export features such as plain txt or sync to mobile device features?

Why not create a customer address group in your address book (in Outlook on Windows, Address Book on Mac OS)?  That'll sort out syncing of your phone numbers in the normal manner.  Sadly though, a custom ring tone which applies to an entire group is one of the (many) useful functions missing from the iPhone.

To get them into Outlook, You will need to export them from Quickbooks to some common file type that Outlook can read. Common Delimited (CSV) would probably work if Quickbooks can export to that. There might be other programs iTunes can sync with in Windows, but I do not know what they are.

I also think that getting them into outlook is the best way.

You can transfer them to outlook with:

Then of course you can sync your iphone again with outlook using itunes.
